The medial temporal lobe and recognition memory.
Evidence from neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and neurophysiological studies of humans, monkeys, and rats indicates that different subregions of the MTL make distinct contributions to recollection and familiarity; the data suggest that the hippocampus is critical for recollection but not familiarity.

Measuring phase-amplitude coupling between neuronal oscillations of different frequencies.
This work presents a new measure for assessing phase-amplitude CFC, defined as an adaptation of the Kullback-Leibler distance-a function that is used to infer the distance between two distributions-and calculates how much an empirical amplitude distribution-like function over phase bins deviates from the uniform distribution.

Hippocampal Neurons Encode Information about Different Types of Memory Episodes Occurring in the Same Location
Firing patterns of hippocampal complex-spike neurons were examined for the capacity to encode information important to the memory demands of a task even when the overt behavior and location of the animal are held constant, suggesting some of the information necessary for representing specific memory episodes is encoded.

A cortical–hippocampal system for declarative memory

  • 1 October 2000
How the cognitive and neural coding mechanisms that underlie declarative memory work together to create and re-create fully networked representations of previous experiences and knowledge about the world are described. Expand
Hippocampus Cognitive Processes and Neural Representations that Underlie Declarative Memory
The hippocampus serves a critical role in declarative memory--the authors' capacity to recall everyday facts and events--and recent characterizations of neuronal firing patterns in behaving animals and humans have suggested how neural representations in the hippocampus underlie those elemental cognitive processes in the service of declaratives memory. Expand
Interplay of Hippocampus and Prefrontal Cortex in Memory
A new model of how the hippocampus forms and replays memories and how the prefrontal cortex engages representations of the meaningful contexts in which related memories occur is led to, as well as how these areas interact during memory retrieval. Expand
Memory, amnesia, and the hippocampal system
In this text, Neal J. Cohen and Howard Eichenbaum bring together converging findings from neuropsychology, neuroscience and cognitive science that provide the critical clues and constraints forExpand
Hippocampal “Time Cells” Bridge the Gap in Memory for Discontiguous Events
A robust hippocampal representation of sequence memories is reported, highlighted by "time cells" that encode successive moments during an empty temporal gap between the key events, while also encoding location and ongoing behavior. Expand
From Conditioning to Conscious Recollection
This monograph will offer a theoretical account of the evolution of multiple memory systems of the brain. The authors conceptualises these memory sytems from both behavioural and neurobiologicalExpand

The view that the hippocampus mediates a general declarative memory capacity in animals, as it does in humans, is strongly supported. Expand
